What a tangled web this novel is.... amazing writing!
I was gripped from start to finish.
The main characters are well rounded, amazingly detailed and life-like; the way they interact through each others lives is intriguing and carefully constructed in building this tense thriller.
You are brought into the story through the horror of a murder /suicide and the impact this leaves on a lovely young woman, who has her own secrets that reveal themselves throughout the book.
As the tension builds you are introduced to a strange writer who plagiarisers and copycats everything in his life and his peculiarly incontinent Mother, a bag lady who will leave you with an urge for a burger and a Cop you want to cuddle; not forgetting all the surrounding characters who pop up and round out the story.
Lots of twists and turns with an ending that really fitted in well.
10/10 for Billie Sue Mosiman
